. ii certainty is a neauny sign for any
state to be in a position to have to im
port men to carry on the work of general
development. Such is the condition of
the labor markat at present. The exten
sive railroad building which is now in
construction and which will continue for
several years to come, means that Oregon
is on the eve of absorbing thousands of
people. The home seeker can't make a
mistake. Every portion of the state is
progressing, however those localties that
make the effort are securing the greatest
per cent of increase.

This county has the authority to spend
annually $1,000 for advertising purposes.
It is a good investment if properly man
aged and will result In securing more
population. Mora population means
more taxes and more business for every
body. It pay the businessman to ad
vertise, why not the county? Other
counties find it profitable and we do not
believe there is another county In the
state that can offer any better induce
ments to the home seekei than Union
county. We certainly have the goods to

Dr. Wiley, having knocked out so many
frauds in his capacity as chemist of the
Agricultural Department, is now sighing
for other worlds to conquer. At present
he is training his guns on what was sup
posed to be the innocuous cranberry, but
in which the doctor's sharp eyes have de
tected benzoic acid, whose continued Juse
is extremely injurious to health. Now, if
benzoic acid is added to embalmed turkey

handing out. It is easy to see that danger
lurks in the popular Thanksgiving and

Geo. W. Powell,
Whatever may be the outcome of the
statehood vote in Arizona and New
Mexico, there is reason to feel satisfied
with the result of the long discussion in
congress and it effects Oklahoma and
Indian Territory, which, by the signing of
the bill by the president on Saturday, are
admitted to joint statehood under the
name of Oklahoma. There has been a
practically united opinion that the claim
of these two territories should be recog
nized. Size, homogeneity and density of
population were all factors admitting of
no argument in determining their fitness
to become a state.
The new state will have an area of
about 70 000 square miles, with a popu
lation estimated at 1,600,000. of which
Oklahoma has 800,000 and Indian Terri
tory 700,000 and Indian Territory 700,
000. The state will therefore have 20
or more inhabitants to the square mile.
And this population is nearly all white,
the name of Indian Territory being in
some sense a misnomer, as the Indian
population numbers only about 100,000
souls. It is said that in both territories !
forming the new state, but more parti
cularity in Oklahoma, illiteracy is almost

A LITTLE TALK ON
ICE CREAM SODA
NOT BETTER THAN THE BEST
BUT BETTER THAN THE REST
To maintain the reputation we have acquired for supplyidg the needs of our
many patrons in every department, a reputation we point to with pardon
able pride, we want, now, to advise you that we have opened our soda
fountain with a new line of crushed fruits and fruit juice which excel any
which we have ever had, and while we may occasianly find a party who
has never tried one of our deiicious ICE CREAM SODAS we find a hun
dred who have, and do, and always will, because they wart the best and
apprec ate a fine article. We have some new flavors this year which are
going to be of universal favor on account of their delicate flavors. Hoping
you will kindly fa or us with an early call, so we may show you.
We are respectfully,
